About Us

Council of Regents

The IASLC has developed a network of Regents around the world to constitute a Council of Regents responsible for a country or group of countries within a geographical region. The Regents have been appointed by the board to ensure effective communication between IASLC and the members, and potential members, of the IASLC in the country or countries for which they have responsibility. IASLC currently has Regent Representatives in 17 regions and covering Medical Oncology, Radiation Oncology, Pulmonology, and Thoracic Surgery.

Regents meet annually at the World Conference on Lung Cancer, and work with the IASLC Membership Department to help recruit new members, provide translations, provide updates for the IASLC Monthly Newsletter, and identify opportunities for growth in the region or among the sub-specialty. Please contact the Regent in your area to learn more about educational opportunities or ways you can become more involved. For general information on the Regent program, please visit the IASLC website or contact Director of Membership, Kristin Richeimer.
